May I please ask the paint color used on the wall behind the photos? Beautiful use of colors. Thank you!

The paint color was custom blended for this home, so I do not have a particular color to share. Thank you for asking, though.

The photos are custom framed, and the painted chain came from a hardware store.

The moulding around the pictures is from a Bham frame shop called Village Framers, and the photographs are "floated" between two pieces of glass.

It looks like an aircraft-cable type of hanger. Here's something similar: http://www.griplocksystems.com/artsuspension/detail.cfm?3-64-Cable-with-80-Ball-Terminal&id=127&cat=2

It is inexpensive chain from a hardware store that we painted.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Comfort and Elegance for 5
Framed black and white photos of the family hang from delicate chains in the entryway as a way to welcome guests into the family's home. "To me this home is clean, crisp, and inviting, but also with a little edge," says Wolter. "You can see glimpses of my style, but more importantly, it reflects my client and her family. I love that she trusted me enough to incorporate what I view as her style into her home."
